Needs an Advocate.


Coming in 2024! 

We're excited to announce that we are launching many of our Feline Masterclass courses in Fall and Winter of 2024. Educate yourself on some of the most common feline diseases/problems, including: Chronic Kidney Disease, Chronic Feline Vomiting/Hairballs, Hyperthyroidism, Feline Arthritis, Feline Dental Disease, & Litter Box woes.  

These courses all teach a strong foundation on the disease process, as well as extensively discuss treatment options within the context of pros, cons, and cost.

Hey there!

Welcome to Smitten with Schmittens!

Our founder, Dr. Joy, believes that education is key to being an advocate for your cat's health!

As a veterinarian of almost 12 years, Dr. Joy uses her experience and passion for providing cats with exceptional healthcare to create online courses that empower YOU with knowledge.  Being informed makes you the best advocate for your cat's health!  Our courses provide a range of treatment options that can be tailored to fit your goals for your cat, your lifestyle, and will provide you tips she have learned over the years that can help you direct your dollars to where they will most help your cat. 

Our canine counterpart website, Delighted by Doggos, is coming soon!  

Our courses are organized by topic and cover many common cat diseases, such as kidney disease, hyperthyroidism, arthritis, and chronic hairballs/vomiting.  Some diseases are preventable, so we also cover preventative healthcare!  Kitten courses are coming soon, and more content is being added all the time!  

When you understand your cat's health, you are empowered to partner with your veterinarian to make the best health care decisions and achieve the best care possible for your cat! Let us help you learn to be an advocate for your cat's health.  

Note: We are not a substitute for your primary care veterinarian. Our materials are educational in nature and not intended to diagnose or direct you how you should treat your cat. All information should be discussed with your primary care veterinarian.

"My cat was my literal child before I ever had my daughters. Dr. Joy's passion for cat health and desire to teach others shines through her classes! She helped me dramatically improve my cat's chronic vomiting/hairballs- which she has had for YEARS!  Now my cat's happier, and so am I!  Thanks Doc!


"You are a wonderful reminder of how much good there is in the world.  Thank you so much for taking care of my Hendrix.  He was so special to me, he was my baby.  Saying goodbye to him was one of the hardest things I've had to do, but I am comforted by the fact that he was given such great care.  I appreciate your help with managing his kidney disease.  I was able to enjoy another 3 years with him after his diagnosis, and I am extremely grateful for that."
